biography
Giuseppe Moccia

He was born in Naples in 1978.
He grew up in Rome and completed his studies with a degree in International Economics in Milan and a one-year certificate at the ICP in New York City.
He started out as a wire photographer covering national news, but then adopted a much more reflective approach to the medium.
He is now working on two main, long-term projects on the changes of the anthropic landscape in Italy and on identity and social inclusion for people affected by Down syndrome.
Giuseppe’s work has received international recognition and has been exhibited in USA, Spain, England and Italy among the others.
